“A few months ago, I did something I never in a million years thought I would do. I posed for my very own boudoir photo shoot. My photographer friend Olivia Womack had been suggesting I do this for years. I would always say no. Why? Because I would look at her GORGEOUS photos of other women and think to myself… this will never happen!…I’m not in shape….My body looks nothing like these other women’s… I’m too embarrassed to be photographed like this!… etc. etc. etc. …Excuses filled my brain. I was also single (at the time) and had no real reason to do something like this. But then one day I realized that I was the reason. I would do this for me. Something to forever capture my youthful body, since I am fastly approaching 40. Something to look back on before I aged and wished I appreciated my body at THIS age. I do that now looking through old photos from 20 years ago. I’m sure we all do.
This experience was one of the most empowering things I’ve ever done. I was nervous and did not know what to expect. But guess what? I came away from this loving myself and ALL of myself. I was blown away at the images that Olivia captured. Simply wonderful. I can’t thank Olivia enough for not only the beautiful photos she took of me, but for encouraging me that I needed to do this and promising me it would be worth it. She was sooo right. I can’t wait to get my book. Ladies I am now encouraging you to do this too. Tastefully done and a very beautiful outcome.”
